In other STAR news, big ups go out to AM Show co-host PAULA McKAY, who spearheaded a 36-hour radio-thon to benefit TURNING POINT, the McHENRY COUNTY domestic violence shelter. PAULA helped raise over $100,000 towards their operating budget. The shelter was built 3 years ago but was unable to open due to a lack of operating funds. Because of Paula, co-host GARY CASTALDO, and the rest of the WZSR team's efforts, the county's only shelter will soon be open and serving hundreds of families in the area in 2007.
